Wheels refurbished now.
They were diamond cut, but looked so scruffy i had to do something, so they are bright silver with flake effect for now.
I've fitted a K&N 57i kit which has made a difference to torque, much better between the gears, and makes a rawsome noise too! Was 2nd hand off ebay and looked like new. £100 is expensive for just a filter and an adaptor pipe for the MAF so i paid half that.
I've fabricated a shroud from 3mm black plastic, cut and shaped to stop it sucking in hot air at low speeds. Beneath the filter is the original airbox lower half which has 2 cold air feeds, so once moving it gets plenty of cold air.
Even standard air boxes suffer from heat soak, but i went for this solution as i didnt want a filter in the bumper, which is a common mod done with a Pipercross VIS, because of the risk of sucking water up. The K&N has a nice bellmouth entry, helping smooth the airflow and making it less turbulent. It makes quite a difference over the original airbox.
It sounds and goes a bit like this -
1st and 2nd gear have a torque limiter, it really flies when in 3rd gear and pulls like a train from idle speed.
Overall i am very happy with it. I do miss the Activa, but made the right choice!
